Well it looks lkie the thread about the tea bagger Family IS the most heavily CENSORED thread EVER!

Half of the thread is GONE and the topic is LOCKED!

I suppose [edited by PW staff] threatened the Weeklky?

Being ONE person that used TWO (WORDS) as a user name, I can say, WTF? This is SO common here as annon posting is the norm, so who gives a damn what fictcious name anyone uses?

GREAT excuse for the Weekly to DELETE HALF of the thread thow.

I can say for sure that I personall did NOT use profanity and of libel the Baggers!

Same Weekly that insisted that they can't link a user to an IP when I was OUTED by the Weekly.

I am DONE with this sorry excuse for a community paper and forum.

Good riddance. Don't let the door hit you.

And to whoever is responsible for checking the language on the board, you should look up (Word. removed as offensive word for Town Square Forum)
and decide whether you want any reference to this on your "community forum".

Yes, there were several attacks posted on that forum that we edited because they violated our terms of use. We try our best to monitor these, but can't always get to every instance right away.

In editing the post you mention and several others, we found a few instances of one person using several user names in one thread, essentially furthering the conversation by talking with him/herself. This is another violation of our terms of use.

We know this only by seeing the same IP address linked to several user names. (An IP address is defined as: numerical identification and logical address that is assigned to a computer). There is no other information we see to ID someone.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
